Taylor (1856 - 1932) was a travel writer entranced by the Northern
climes. Her visits to Iceland, Canada, Norway and, above all, the
Faroe Islands, resulted in the essays contained in this book. Her
original writings were passed around for year and eventually were
given to her great-grandnephew who organized them and even visited
some of the places Elizabeth wrote about. There are 39 articles
from Elizabeth's writings in this book along with letters she wrote
and received from family and friends along the way.

are full of personal feeling and quite radiant with color. --
